It sounds as though you are trying to use a unix/linux patch tool on windows or mac. Use a native patch tool - I think TortoiseCVS includes one for windows, or the free Microsoft "services for Unix (SFU)" or whatever they call it these days or the unxutils project on sourceforge: http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/ If you must use a unix/linux patch tool then use CVSNT on unix/linux to check out the file and then use unix/linux to patch the file and commit it back. If you are using cygwin - then that counts as a different OS (it certainly isn't windows since it doesn't use or understand windows line endings) and you should use cygwin cvs to checkout cygwin files. As Bo/Luigi have pointed out - there are ways to get text files out of CVSNT server with different line endings, but the procedure will vary depending if the file should *always* have unix/linux line endings or if you just need them to have the 'wrong' line endings once because you've got a broken patch tool.
